WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT, HOW DO WE COLLECT IT, AND WHY?
Data that you provide voluntarily to us:
When you use any of our Sites, or you otherwise communicate with us through our Site(s), we may ask you to provide certain personal data voluntarily, including but not limited to your name, company position, postal address, telephone number, mobile number, fax number, email address, age or date of birth, account usernames, passwords, or gender. For example, we may ask you to provide some or all of this personal data when you register an account with us or have one registered on your behalf by your employer, subscribe to our marketing communications, and/or submit enquiries to us. We use this information to create and administer your account, send you marketing communications, provide you with the products and services you request or which are provisioned to your employer, and to respond to your enquiries. In general, the personal data that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal data.
Data collected automatically:
When you use any of our Sites, products, or services, we may collect certain data automatically from your computers or devices (including mobile devices). The data we collect automatically may include your IP address (explained further below), device type, operating system details, unique device identification numbers (including mobile advertising identifiers), browser-type, browser language, operating system, geographic location (as explained further under the heading “Location information”) and other technical information. We may also collect data about how your device has interacted with our Sites, products or services, including the pages or features accessed and links clicked, the amount of time spent on particular pages, mouse hovers, the date and time of the interaction, error logs, referring and exit pages and URLs, and similar information.

We use this information for our internal analytics purposes, and to improve the quality, relevance, and security of our Sites, products and services.
For example, every time you connect to any of our Sites, we store a log of your visit that shows the unique number your machine uses when it is connected to the Internet - its IP address. This log tells us what your machine has looked at, whether the page request was successful or not, and which browser your machine used to view the pages. This data is used for statistical purposes as well as to help customize the user experience as you browse the Site and subsequently interact with Free Market Health. This helps us to understand which areas of the Sites are of most significance and interest, which pages are not being requested, and how many people are visiting the Sites in total.
